Langham Hotel Melbourne

Posted on April 19, 2011 | HotelsNo Comment

The original grand hotel of Langham is now the Langham Hotel Melbourne whose remarkable hospitality is evidently admirable to experience, but inadvertently hard to describe. Well, I am sure you will take it as a pleasure to stay in this hotel whose esteem has been raised by the nomination in the World’s Best Readers’ Awards by the Travel + Leisure Magazine USA as the top hotel not only of the nation, but also in the entire region of the South Pacific and New Zealand for the second consecutive year. Now, this has made the service of the hotel a legendary one to which you will simply proud to add its enviable riverside location as well as the recognition of the city jewel. Truly, this is an exceptional city hotel in Melbourne boasting notable features as well as facilities of which several are simply the only of its kind here.

The Langham Hotel Melbourne adorns the Southgate shopping/business complex from where the Royal botanic Gardens, Federation Square, Melbourne Aquarium, and Victorian Arts Center are at a strolling distance.


This 24-level tower facing the beautiful river of Yarra is the home of the 387 non-smoking rooms and suites all of which occupy the 10 to 24 floors. No matter which you take, all tend to facilitate the vistas of the bay, river, or the Southgate area and are embellished with the hotel’s signature style featuring typical wood furnishings, national art work, and thick drapes decorated with the floral carvings. Among the amenities, the rooms offer pay movies, high-speed Internet access, climate control, premium bedding, AC, complimentary weekday newspaper, curtains, Internet access (surcharge), voice mail, direct-dial phone, free bottled water, refrigerator, wake-up calls, mini bar, turndown service, daily housekeeping, bathroom phone, bathrobes, hair dryer, mirror, complimentary toiletries, sewing kit, in-room massage, slippers, separate bathtub and shower, clock radio, extra towels/bedding, cable television service, wired/wireless high-speed Internet access (surcharge), electronic check-out, electronic/magnetic keys, desk, cribs, iron/ironing board, rollaway beds, and in-room safe.

The bathrooms are really big and possess marble carvings, big mirrors, crystal-prism fixtures, showers enclosed in glass, bathtubs, and vanity areas with mirrors. I would suggest going for the Club Spa Suite, Teddy Bear Package, Wish Upon a Star, or the Langham Club Lounge.

At the Langham Hotel Melbourne, it is only the multi-level eatery Melba that will mesmerize you. Named so after the most famous Dame Nellie Melba (the opera icon), the restaurant is loaded with the floor-to-ceiling windows for the vistas of the skyline as well as the river, buffet stations draped in glass and steel for offering the contemporary feel, and innovative light fixtures. There are also a few interactive stations where you are welcome to cook on a tandoori oven, while the floating desserts station is where you enjoy tasting the chilled stuff. Most of the times, you will be offered the national as well as the Asian food along with the famous chocolate fondue fountain.
